In response to flooding in Georgia and the Southeast region, EMLab P&K has added mold testing and bacteria testing capacity to support the increased need for environmental testing.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL, October 01, 2009 --(PR.com)-- In response to flooding in the Atlanta metro area and rest of the Southeast, EMLab P&K has added local and overall mold testing and bacteria testing capacity, including weekend and emergency staffing, to support the increased need for environmental testing. As the nation’s leading environmental testing laboratory, EMLab P&K maintains a strong presence in the region with an AIHA accredited mold testing and bacteria testing lab in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and also Fairfax, Virginia. EMLab P&K also has sample drop-off locations in Georgia (Atlanta and Savannah), Tennessee (Nashville and Knoxville), Charlotte, North Carolina and Charleston, South Carolina and Mobile, Alabama.

As property owners return to their homes and businesses that may appear to be irreparable, some buildings may be salvageable through remediation. In addition to losing personal possessions, property owners must deal with the potential for bacterial contamination, mold growth, sewage contamination and other environmental health concerns caused by flooding and water damage.

“EMLab P&K has been staying informed about the flooding situation in Georgia as well as the Southeast region. We also teamed up with TestAmerica to offer a wide range of environmental testing lab services to help the states address emerging health concerns quickly,” said Belinda Vega, EMLab P&K’s President. “During a critical time like this, our proactive approach has an immediate and positive impact with the lab services we are able to provide. As always, clients can expect and trust the quality and accuracy of our lab analysis.”
